Answer:

#4 + 12/2 - 3 * 2 = 4#

Explanation:

Remember to use PEMDAS, that is

Parantheses #-># Exponents #-># Multiplication/Division #-># Addition/Subtraction

for your order of doing calculations

So start with working out #12/2# and #3*2#, then put those answers into the calculation.

#4 + 12/2 - 3 * 2 = 4 + cancel(6) - cancel(6) = 4#
